Stacey was welcomed as part the team on the reserve for her first day today; she has joined us after finishing her contract with the British Antarctic Survey where she was surveying penguins. Stacey will be working here during the busy summer months, assisting in all aspects of life on the reserve. Already she has been working hard alongside the reserve managers dealing with a dangerous tree and repairing this dam along Risedale Beck. We hope that you enjoy your time at Foxglove.

A Greylag Goose has been sat very patiently on her nest in the scrapes for the last four weeks. Visitors found that the eggs had hatched and were delighted to see six goslings swimming on the ponds and later on the lake.
